DOE Visiting Faculty Program


The Visiting Faculty Program (VFP), seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty members and their students at institutions historically underrepresented in the research community in order to expand the workforce vital to the Department of Energy (DOE) mission areas.  Selected university/college faculty members collaborate with laboratory research staff on a project of mutual interest. Faculty may invite up to two students (undergrad and/or graduate) to participate in the research project. Faculty is responsible for selecting the students. Student will receive access to the VFP application system once selected and must complete the application process.
